The Chicago Police Department will reprimand two officers seen taking a knee and raising their fists in an Instagram photo.

The Chicago Police Department's code of conduct does not allow officers to participate "in any partisan political campaign or activity".

Two police officers who kneeled alongside an activist in a viral social media photo will be reprimanded, a spokesperson for the Chicago Police Department said.

On Sunday, players across the NFL knelt during the national anthem in protest of remarks President Donald Trump made at a rally in Alabama over the weekend. In response to the first photo of the officers kneeling, a spokesman for the FOP said Monday it was "not appropriate to comment at this time".

Oil Prices Relatively Steady, Despite Surprise Crude Draw (USO)
United States exports jumped 61% to 1.49 million barrels a day, the Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported . Now that the refining complex is mostly up and running again, oil stockpiles are beginning to fall again.

The same day an Englewood activist Aleta Clark marched into South Side police departments wondering the same thing about local officers.

However, because the political statement by officers in uniform posted to Instagram violated department policy, Emanuel said he understood the internal decision to discipline the officers.

After news broke that the officers would face disciplinary action, Clark posted a separate video of an interview she gave with reporters defending the cops.

More than 200 NFL players protested during the National Anthem on Sunday, opting to kneel or sit.

2 civilians injured as Pakistan troops violate ceasefire in Poonch
Officials say that the cease fire violation took place from 0815 hours in Poonch and Bhimber Gali sectors along Line of Control. "Indian side retaliated strongly and effectively", said defence spokesperson, adding that the firing stopped around 11:30am.

Neither Chicago Police Department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi nor Mayor Rahm Emanuel responded immediately to a request for comment about the latest photo.

"I think that it's imperative that African-Americans know their rights", Clark told Fox 32. Many have vocalized that the display is an offense to military veterans; while others say it is a peaceful protest against racism and police brutality.

The protests started when former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick knelt during the anthem past year.

Trump also reiterated that his issue with kneeling had nothing to do with race, but instead is about "respect for our Country, Flag and National Anthem".
